I had a look at these Virgin America redemptions and seems that using Elevate points for Singapore Airlines and maybe Virgin Australia flights are worthwhile. The very high fuel surcharges on both Emirates and Virgin Atlantic are no go for me.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
The typical earn for Elevate members is 5 points per $1 spent on the base fare for Virgin America flights – in this offer, you will receive a one-time bonus of 500 Elevate reward points. Guests must be enrolled with an active account in the Elevate frequent flyer program and claim their bonus by correctly entering their Elevate number online on or before December 31, 2014. Only one bonus points award will be credited per Elevate member account. Eligible Elevate members will receive their bonus reward points up to 3 weeks after submitting their claim. Bonus reward points do not qualify towards Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold status. Bonus reward points cannot be transferred between accounts and will only be posted to the Elevate membership account as detailed in the notification email. Other Elevate program terms and conditions apply, as detailed athttps://www.virginamerica.com/cms/elevate-frequent-flyer/member-guide.
